Pedigree critique?

Out of curiosity, and also because my filly happens to have the question hanging over her head of possible OCD [which can be genetic], what do you think of this pedigree?

Closedasun Thoroughbred

Any thoughts? I know there are some famous US names in there a few generations back, and a few of the names closer up are reasonably well-known here in Aus. I say reasonably because, not being a TB buff myself, I know who they are, and usually if I know a TB name it's a big one.

Based on her breeding, tell me about my horse?

Has good bloodlines back past Hartleys Spirit. The double cross of Northern Dancer and has Raise a Native in there and Mr Prospector. Also Todman.... Not to mention Nijinski and Beau Soverign!

Good breeding all round for racing. Hartleys Spirit was a black type racehorse, should produce a few gems. Would fetch a decent price price at the yearling sales! I take it is not for racing? 2010.... What's wrong with it or was it a stud dispersal sale?

Thank you Dulcify :)

She's not a racehorse... shame that really as I think she would have been a good one. She's quick! And her full brother is running and apparently doing quite well for himself. Unfortunately she's presently unsound and we don't know what's going on for sure. Vet's provisional diagnosis, pending x-rays, is OCD which apparently is very common in TB's especially those, like Magic, that are built large for their age. She's got a pretty big body considering she's only 2.

The other thing stopping her from racing is that I don't have her papers. She's not named in the studbook, but she IS there, DNA'd and microchipped. Her previous owner was giving her away for free right when I was looking for a reasonably cheap quality young TB to bring on [for showjumping, a bit of eventing, and maybe some showing] so stupid me didn't even think to check for soundness. I wouldn't have figured an unbroken 2yo would have soundness issues but then again an unbroken 2yo TB that was intended for racing is unbroken for a reason.

I did ask for some sort of proof of ownership and all I got was a bit of paper signed by the guy's agent stating that she'd been given to me [but it has the wrong brands on it because the agent thought the 5 on her nearside shoulder was a 3, so it wouldn't hold up in court or anything]... I was kind of hoping for a foal card at least, but hey, not many TB's go to equestrian homes with their papers in tow.
